The pin number is something that you will always need to set up when pairing two devices using bluetooth, regardless of the OS. You will have to input a number of usually 4 digits and repeat the same number on the other device to show that you have the the right to access both devices.Hey i would like to know how to change the bluetooth pin on backtrack 2.
So i could try some bluetooth hacking on my cell phone but every time i connect it says i need a pass key but i do not know the pin number so what is it or how do i change it.
And is their anyway that i could set it up so i connect with out it asking for one.
To actually connect to a device and get paired without using the bluetooth is possible on some phones. But this is mainly really old phones which where the very first to implement bluetooth. The pin is however possible to bruteforce using the right tools and hardware.
The interesting part of pin numbers is that many devices that come without any user input devices often use the default pin key of 0000. This goes for a broad range of handsfree devices and kayboards/mouses. Since a passkey that always is the same hardly provides much protection it is possible to intercept these signals with malicious intent easily. I.e. remote keyloggers, eavesdrop on conversations even when the owner is not making a call and inputing arbitrary sounds/messages into the earpiece and so on.
